I agree that Olive doesn't sound nice with your surname, which is a shame because it's such a sweet little name. Here are some other ideas:
Juliet- It's strong and feminine. Meaning: youthful
Lucy- Very sweet. I also love the alliteration between it and your surname. Meaning: light (a nice connection to big sister Stella)
Phoebe- Spunky! Meaning: bright, shining one (another nod to Stella)
Miriam- One of my favorite names. Meaning: wished for child
Dorothea- It's long and lilting and lovely. Meaning: gift of God"Walter. That’s good. I’ve never known a little kid named Walter. It seems like an old man’s name, but I guess you have to start somewhere."

Likes (and a few thoughts about each)
Violet-- Every once in a while when I say it I hear violent...It's weird I know but it does bother me.
Ivy-- I worry about Ivy liv-uh-see sounding too repitive
Ruby-- It's really cute but for some reason I can't get 100% on board with it
Lark-- really like...it's different and unique, but not quite feminine enough
Evangeline-- I think this is super pretty, but do worry that the feel of it makes Stella stand out in a weird way in my sib set?
Pearl-- Hubby isn't very keen on this as a first name, but it's my fave middle name
Imogen-- sweet, but not in love with Gen as a nickname
Elinor/Eleanor-- Looove these..but not huge on the El sound as Stella is called Stella Bella about 80% of the time.
Beatrice/Beatrix-- I loooooove Beatrice. This is probably my current favorite, but in our little church there is a little Beatrice already and I know people are weird about "name stealing" and things so I have been avoiding names of friends and people I know.
Audrey-- Love and I think it fits well with my other kids names, but not sure it's different enough for what I want to go with for our last? On the fence with this one
Carys-- really pretty..but I have a SIL Cari and they feel too close to me?
Edith-- Sweet and different but I'm a big Downton fan and although Edith isn't awful the association does bother me a little. She's just so...meh...
Francesca-- Pretty..not sure if I could avoid Franny though and not sure how I feel about it.
Juliet- Very pretty, but my BFF is Julie and so I would probably only use this a middle name
Lucy- See...I always kinda though Lucy Liv-uh-see didn't work well. Hubby didn't like the way they sounded together
Dorothea- This is actually one of my short list names at the moment because we talked about using Thea, but I wanted to avoid the 2 syl a thing. My gma was Dorothy. But Dorothea isn't my fave. Also thought about Theadora...but it feels so Wizard of Oz
Ophelia- This is really pretty...but it's very long and the nicknames aren't obvious...I can't think of one at the moment. My family loves nn's..which is annoying at times, but something I have to think about. :/
Naomi -- I actually really like this one, but won't use Biblical only because people point out that Stella isn't biblical all the time and then she would really stand out
Madeleine -- really like this, but worry she would be lost in a see of Maddy's
I'm an over thinker I think is my problem!
